WESTMINSTER, Colo., Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Flagship Biosciences' MuscleMap algorithm that supports therapeutic
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a rare, progressive, and fatal neuromuscular disease caused by dystrophin protein loss in muscle. To support investigational treatment approaches, Flagship applied its expertise and proprietary technology in digital tissue image analysis to develop an immunofluorescent scanning and digital image-analysis solution that enables analysis of all muscle fibers within a biopsy section as well as providing data on each individual fiber.
To validate the MuscleMap approach, the study compared high-powered microscopic field total fiber counts and dystrophin-positive fiber counts obtained by trained pathologists to data produced by the MuscleMap algorithm. The authors note that this work is the first to validate immunofluorescent scanning and digital tissue image analysis workflow with the rigor required to support clinical trials.
"These exciting results will support more effective clinical trials for examining myofibers dystrophin expression by driving a greater level of consistency and detail," says Trevor D. Johnson, Flagship Biosciences CEO. "Flagship is proud to partner with pharmaceutical and biotech companies in the development of digital image analysis solutions, like MuscleMap, that support the treatment of challenging medical conditions such as DMD."
